Carol, I was wondering where everyone was too and voila' there you were.
I put my Sunbonnet Sue quilt on my page. I did a lot of the work while I was laid up with my shoulder.

I get a little discouraged because I can't lift ,my arm yet, but I can do so much more than I could a couple of weeks ago, like typing with both hands and stuff like that.

emoticon This is a little strange, but I took a shower and managed to finally wash my own hair. I have been using another no rinse shampoo, that you just towel off, instead of water. It is a little lopsided on one side but it looks clean.

I finally finished up all the owls and now to square them up and ready to sash them. It is nice to be finishing up something. LOL

Carol, have a great time with the UK friends. Sounds likes fun.

YEA! Four days off! I do have a bit of office work today but that's it, and a haircut. I'll be so pretty for the fourth of July. We've made some friends that are British and stationed here with the RAF at our local AF Base. We invited them to our Fourth of July celebration at the Yacht Club and told them not to wear any British shirts! HA HA! When we lived in England in the 1970's with the USAF, we loved it there and we made some good and lasting British friends. Now we have made their stay in the US special. I've introduced Barbara to Quilting and she is churning out quilts and bags faster than a flying knight! She has even bought a Viking Sapphire 960Q and I have had sew much fun sharing patterns and information with her. We are already planning a trip to England when they return in a couple of years. We have been back several times since we left, lastly in 2008. Time to go back. This next time, we will rent a car and travel around a bit, visiting old haunts and doing some geneology. Carol

I got my new car, well, new to me. 2011 Honda Odyssey, Celestial Blue with 33,000 miles on it, new tires and in great shape! Now I just have to transfer all of my stuff from my old one to the new one. Maybe I can keep it cleaner. Carol

emoticon The rain still falls daily, nice and green, but the dog hates it, wheat needs a little sun to ripen it. Guess, I would really enjoy some summer without the hail, tornados and stuff.

I went and got my new glasses and bought some stuff at Walmart. My grandson and Debbie went with us. It is awfully hard to get around. Sometimes life seems hard but I do so not want to harp on it.

Wow, Carol, what an unexpected water experience! Some "memories" seem like we could do without, eh??! Thankful that all individuals are safe and sound now!

JOLETTE - I have a Caleb who will be in his 3rd yr of college come the end of Aug. And my 1st sone will be in his 4th (& final?) yr of college. It is definitely a "change" to interact with them as young adults. -- The blessing is that both boys have full time jobs for the summer!

emoticon Today my son and daughter-in-law, and the two grandsons came over to look at pictures. It was fun to reminisce and talk to the young men. They are so neat, and growing up so much. Adam has only about six weeks until off to Christian College, and Caleb is a sophomore in high school. I am sure grandma bored them silly but they acted like they enjoyed being with us..

The family just left and drove to North Carolina. As we were having lunch, we joked with the boys about how we all had our shoes at the end. We tried to keep it light and we all laughed. Don't want any nightmares. Thank you all for your concern. It was very scary. Carol

Yesterday, my son and wife and his 4 and 9 yr old boys and my husband rented two canoes on the Blackwater River in Milton, FL. We had done this before and it is fairly safe but there were a lot of folks tubing and as we came up to a bend in the river, there were a lot of tubers in front of us. We veered to the left of them and both our canoes got caught in a strong current and turned over. All of us went under and got trapped under the log. I swallowed a lot of water and came up and held onto that log for dear life. Thankfully, the tubers stopped to help us as there was a sandy spot across from the current. My husband said he thought he was going to die and was trapped and finally got up. The two boys had life vests on and popped up but my daughter-in-law, who is 11 weeks pregnant was also trapped and was thrown to that log. These guys came across with their tubes and rescued us one by one. I was holding onto a large green bag full of wet beach towels and finally had to let it go. Unfortunately, my sons shorts with his wallet, keys and cell phone were in it. I felt so bad that I let it go but then I had to keep reminding myself that we were all safe and no one seriously injured. My other daughter in law came to get Erin, the boys and myself while my husband and son waited for the rental car company to come and bring them a new car. Took hours as we were out in the boondocks. I did not sleep well last night, kept dreaming I was still in the water. This morning I just started to cry which is very unlike me but the realization that I treasure my family and was so thankful we were safe. All of us agree that God truly put that group of men in those tubes to help us. Both of our canoes were completely submerged and those men went over and brought them both up out of the water. I just can't imagine the strength they had to do that. I'm ever so grateful and just wish I could thank them again.
The funny thing was, all of us lost one or both of our shoes, flip flops, and they all floated down river and were retrieved. All of us left with two shoes on our feet. I don't think we will be going back for a while.
My pregnant daughter-in-law is all right and the boys have talked about it and so I think things will level out. They are leaving today to go back to North Carolina. Carol

I am almost done with the owls, on the twelfth one of twelve. It is so nice to be able to do something creative.

I'm still going to the gym most days. Scale hasn't caught up to all my recent activity.

Hoping to get my downstairs back to normal so I can pick up my sewing machine again.

Evenings play catch with DH for some relaxing stretching.

Jolette - I have been around just not on the message boards. I'm still tracking all my exercise but have delinquent in tracking my food. I've just been unbelievably busy since I retired that I have had little time on the computer.

That is FANTASTIC news about your great grandson. His parents must be so happy as this opens whole new world for him.

Ginny, it is so nice to see you again.

Are you ready for a big miracle? My great-grandson is autistic, and had no way of communicating. Well, David is now talking. and wants to talk all the time. He is so amazing, he is not really fluent yet, but he is talking in sentences. He is eight, and I hear it is really rare for autistic people to attempt to respond to others. I am so happy.

I've pretty much finished sorting old photos and docs which had taken over my dining and living room (or really my quilting area).

I'm hoping to clean it all up in the next few days so I can open my surprise fabric box I got from a nice.

Hope all is well with everyone. Retirement has been keeping me hopping and not so close to a computer for very long recently.

I managed to finally get my nails done. They were really sad emoticon looking what with 10 weeks without work on it.

More rain today, but it sure is green around here, which is usually getting brown by this time.
I am ready for a little sun though

Successfully installed some beautiful draperies yesterday! Such a good feeling. I have a new friend whose husband is an RAF Officer/pilot stationed here with the USAF for 3 years. She has seen some of my quilts and decided that she would like to have a "go" at making something. So I showed her how to make a simple rail fence and she has made a baby top and trying to quilt it on a small singer I lent here. She has made a second top with jelly rolls. Now, she has ventured into the fabric store and asked them if they have a dual voltage machine and they showed her a Viking that can be used in the states as well as England. The price is $2299 which I think is a steal in comparison to a Bernina. I have a viking and love it. I encouraged her to buy it and her husband is teasing me about it although he just bought an expensive toy for himself. She is very creative and makes cards and she has taken to this like a duck to water. I bet she gets it, and soon. When we lived in England in the 70's with the USAF, we made some wonderful friends and have gone back numerous times to visit. Its time for another trip but I think we will wait until they go back. Already been invited. Carol

Yay, I am putting on the binding of my sunbonnet redwork. Almost done, whew.

I am a happy camper, since I have gone gluten free, my diabetes numbers have dropped. My A1c is now 6.1, which is almost not diabetic at all. I has come down 9 points in 6 months.

My little Scruffy is shaking because of the storms. I really relate to him because I don't like thunder and lightning and especially hailstorms.

But as you say, "Lots to do for the day"!
-- I have my walk done + a roast & veggies in the crock pot for dinner. Hope to finish a quilt top and maybe put another "sandwich" together.

So, hoping to make the best of it! -- I'll be working in a testing center for the next 3 days, so juggling is the name of the game.

I'm with you Pam. Every morning I peruse the internet looking for quilting info. My inbox is crammed with quilting sites. I always start the day reading Bonnie Hunter and then go from there. I'm researching the blooming 9 patch right now and find it very interesting. Someone once told me, "We don't go through life, we grow through life." Carol

It's always interesting to see / hear how the past & present connect via people! It usually is most unexpected!

I'm loving how pushing myself in quilting: looking at magazines & books, asking questions, trying new things--all have given me more confidence to experiment with different options.
** I didn't like the way the colors were coming together on a top after I sewed the blocks together, so I added a strip between rows and matching borders all around. What a difference it makes!

Today I installed some shades for a client and casually mentioned I was a quilter. She said she had a sister who was famous and pulled out a book AMERICAN QUILTS. Her sister is Joan M. Rigal who is featured on page 144-145. She has evidently taught many workshops and classes and I love the designs she did. Book was published in 1990 when things were still old fashioned somewhere but there is a nine patch quilt in solids that I love! Would love to try it. I googled her and found her on the internet. SMall world. Carol

Well, I heard from the VA already! In spite of all the news about it. My claim was filed in Feb and I have been given a 10% disability! Wow that was fast! And I never thought I would get anything! I have an undetermined anxiety disorder due to military service but it is controlled with meds. It goes out of whack occasionally and meds have to be adjusted but it is so mild compared to what others have suffered. I won't go into it but it is a relief to finally deal with it. Carol

Congrats to you and your families! That's wonderful news on both fronts. There are so many news stories about this generation's "failure to launch" that stories like these are a breath of fresh air and are just really heartwarming.

I have bragging rights! Yesterday we went to a 3 hour dance recital at the historic theater in Pensacola. There were about 200 kids, it seemed like that many. My granddaughter was dancing in her first big recital. She is 12 and only dancing for about a year and a half. But she was beautiful, her face so expressive and she has the most beautiful hands with long graceful fingers. We thought she was fabulous, dancing in six segments. At the end of the show, the owner of the dance place had all the kids up on stage to introduce the instructors and congratulations. Then she announced the 3 assistant instructors for next year that won 50% scholarships. Then she announced a new scholarship she had established this year in honor of a friend who had died. My granddaughter won! Her parents and 2 sets of grandparents exploded in the seats! She won and I am so proud of her.
For you see, my GD only weighed 17 ozs when she was born. YOu read that right, 1 lb 1 oz. She and her mother almost died from pre-eclampsia. She has struggled with illness and growing pains and had to repeat kindergarten but now she gets straight A's in 6th grade!
We are so proud of her! Thanks for listening! Carol

You are very smart to plan ahead. I remember that our refrigerator went out and within a week so did the washer and the freezer. Everything was 25 years old and most people upgrade when they move, but we stay put. For us it not only rained, it poured!

Carol you are so correct about the flood insurance. We have taken it for the past 2 years. With the weather as freaky as it is and we now have wood floors, I am taking no chance. It cost us about $1500 to replace a portion of the floor due to water damage from a leaking window. Thank heavens the window company paid for the repair!

Water damage happens even if you aren't in the flood zone!
Stay safe and dry!

You may have seen the news about flooding on the Gulf Coast. They have shown Pensacola where Scenic Hwy fell into the water. We asre very fortunate that we did not have any damage but there is a mega amount around here for others. If you live near water, buy Flood Insurance even if you are not in a flood plain. It only costs less than $400 a year and if you don't have it and your home is flooded, you are up the creek without a paddle and the insurance co will not pay. We watched a woman on TV last night who lives not far from me who was flooded. She had no flood insurance and has lost everything. Carol

We are having torrential downpours here in Northwest FL. Roads are washed out all over NWF. We are hunkered down. Our shed was flooded with 3 rolls of batting in it but it was wrapped so I think it is okay. People are stranded, no power, etc. Thankfully we still have power. Guess I will be sewing today! Or something else. Carol

Jolette - So glad you're healing well and that the dr's visit was a success.

Carol - Congrats on finding a bathing suit quickly and relatively painlessly. That is awesome. I'm not a crier, but if there's one thing that can bring me to tears, it's trying on bathing suits. Glad that it went well. What was the store?

So happy you are improving Jolette! Yesterday I went for the dreaded bathing suit shopping. I went to a local store with thousands of suits and resort wear in all sizes and styles! Second one I tried on was a winner and it was only $69! I was prepared to pay whatever it took to get something that fit me. Bathing suit shopping is not all that much fun anymore with my body. carol

Feeling very achy today, foot, both hips. Did way to much yesterday and I am in charge of a picnic for 102 on Saturday, so I MUST TAKE IT EAST TODAY! So I am thinking about making a Good Deeds dress. That is fun and it will let me sit more then I stand or walk around.

Carol, I loved the book and I loaned it to someone and I know I will never get it back.

Last night we went to see Heaven is for Real. When my mother in law was sick last year, I read the book to her and she loved the story. It was pretty true to the book although it dragged in the beginning and in places. Good ending though. The theater was full and if you are a believer, you will appreciate it. They said that it surpassed Johnny Depp's new movie in revenues even though it is not in as many theaters! Lots of families and children. I'd also like to see God is not DEAD. Carol

Oh, fiinishing another's project! That quilter would be gleeful knowing it didn't go to waste! I just love sewing scrappy quilts and giving them away. I'm up early due to hubby's bathroom trip. Finishing the two borders on my breast cancer quilt and going for a massage at 10:00 are on my plate. I need to go to the grocery but that's too much work. Carol

Spent an hour or two cutting & arranging squares for a "spring" quilt. Someone had started a 9-patch quilt and also had added some large sized squares. I got just the pieces and added 3-4 colors (white, pink, yellow, & purple). I will cut the large squares in half on the diagonal--learned a new way to make a 2-triangle square with minimal trouble! Once I get the pieces sewn into larger squares, then I can lay it all out and see what way to arrange it and how it will look!

Kind of going "by the seat of my pants" here since it is mid-way into someone else's project. -- (Sometimes we get donations of projects to finish at our quilting group at church.)

I sewed all day on my breast cancer quilt and finished the top except two rows of border! Tomorrow it will be done and off to the quilter. Carol

I went to the Quilt Show in Pensacola and shopping at A & E and am real proud of myself. I did not spend very much money and came home with only a little bit of fabric! I did however, get a notebook with fabric cover for my UFO's. Carol

Had a great guild meeting tonight! We have a quarterly prize of $25 cash to the person whose name is drawn that donated a charity quilt. I won! Then I also won a door prize, a pair of pink breast cancer scissors and a pusher. Sew appropriate since I am making a breast cancer quilt for my church to auction off. Carol

My foot is fine, thanks to my Doc friend and taking care of it right away. My client called yesterday and offered to buy me a pair of shoes. Accidents happen and I declined. I just want her to buy some rugs from me. I've been sew busy. Hubby is on the roof right now cleaning off leaves. Hope he doesn't fall off it. Carol

So yesterday, I was at a client's home and was bringing things into the house when "OUCH". I had stepped on a rusty roofing nail that went right through my shoe into the ball of my foot! Did I say Rusty? I had a tetnus shot last year when I sliced my finger with a rotary cutter so felt all right with that. When I left the home it was a bit sore and last night, we were having dinner with a physician friend who wrote me a scrp for an antibiotic. I feel better about that and soaked my foot in epsom salts last night. Definitely don't want an infection in a foot to deal with and I guess I'll be limping a bit today. Carol

It is almost 4 hour drive for me, we live near Birmingham. I'd love to come this weekend, but it's my weekend to work. I will have to make a point to look it up next time we head south.

Bev, you are close to Pensacola where you live, aren't you? You definitely need to take a day trip over and go to A & E Pharmacy on New Warrington Road. What a trip it is. You kind of have to know what you are looking for when you go in, otherwise, it is reallly confusing. The Pe4nsacola quilt show is this weekend, April 11, 12 and It should be good. I am going on Saturday and we could meet! Carol
